Crystorama chandelier
Westbury, N.Y. - Decorative lighting source Crystorama Lighting has been named a finalist in the 26th annual ARTS Awards competition in the lighting fixtures category.

Founded in 1958 by Abraham Kleinberg as a Brooklyn, N.Y.-based importer of crystal and brass chandeliers from Czechoslovakia, Crystorama has evolved over the past five-plus decades into a leading producer of interior decorative chandeliers, pendants, sconces and other lighting across a wide range of styles. The company is known for superb craftsmanship, innovative use of materials and creative designs, which fuse timeless techniques with current inspirations to create fashion-forward styles with a unique mix of metals, finishes and crystals.

"We are deeply honored to have been selected as one of the finalists in this year's prestigious ARTS Awards competition," said Brad Kleinberg, president of Crystorama, "Building on the bedrock principles of our founder, my father Abe, we remain passionately committed to creating stunningly beautiful and functional lighting that enriches people's lives. Through our original designs and collaborations with influential designers, such as Libby Langdon, we've taken lighting to the next level and made it into the 'jewelry of the home.'"

Developed by the Accessory Resource Team and produced by Dallas Market Center, the ARTS Awards competition is the premier international awards program dedicated to home industry excellence and achievement in retailing, manufacturing, design and representation. A year-long process of submission, review and judging, the Arts Awards competition culminates with a black-tie gala held each January during the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market.

The 26th annual ARTS Award presentation will be held Friday, Jan. 16 at the Hilton Anatole Hotel in Dallas. Award winners will be announced during the gala, which is attended by nearly 700 industry leaders. The winners - chosen by an expert panel of industry leaders from hundreds of submissions - are recognized for attributes such as customer service, craftsmanship, creativity and business excellence.
